The St. Louis Cardinals placed right fielder Stephen Piscotty on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because of a right groin strain.
The Cardinals also recalled rookie outfielder Magneuris Sierra from Triple-A Springfield prior to Saturday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates,
Piscotty, 26, injured his right groin on Friday night in the ninth inning after running to catch a shallow fly ball, forcing him to leave the game.
Piscotty is making his second appearance on the disabled list this season, as he missed 12 games from May 5-19 because of a strained right hamstring. He is batting .236 with six home runs and 31 RBIs in 69 games this season.
Sierra, 21, made his major league debut on May 7 in Atlanta earlier this season after being purchased from Class A Palm Beach.
Sierra hit safely in his first eight games and has the longest active hitting streak on the Cardinals. He was batting .375 (12-for-32) with three RBIs in eight games before being optioned to Double-A Springfield on May 19.
Through 65 games in the minors between Springfield and Palm Beach, Sierra is hitting .286 with 16 doubles, six triples, a home run and 32 RBIs. He is 14 of 22 in stolen-base attempts.
